Health Ministry Māori Response Action plan under criticism

From Midday Report, 12:45 pm on 20 April 2020

The Ministry of Health has released its Māori Response Action plan to Covid-19, but Māori health experts have strongly criticised it, saying it needs to be urgently resuscitated. 

Most of the $56 million has now been fully committed to Māori communities to help with a targeted response. 

The Ministry's Deputy Director-General of Māori Health is John Whaanga.
